Athens Dems want Hice out of House

ACCDC calls for resignation or eviction

Athens Democrats are calling for the resignation of 10th District Congressman Jody Hice, the Walton County Republican who represents most of Athens in the US House. The local Democrats say Hice was an instigator in the riots that rocked the US Capitol last Wednesday.

From the Athens-Clarke Co Democratic Committee…

The Executive Committee members of the Athens-Clarke County Democratic Committee unequivocally condemn the insurrection encouraged by President Donald Trump and executed by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021. We also resolutely condemn the actions and intentions of Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) which helped lead to the attack on the US Capitol. Through his words and actions, Hice has shown that his loyalty lies with Donald Trump, instead of the voters of his district. Congressman Hice has violated his oath of office and should resign or be expelled from Congress. Both Jody Hice and the newly-elected Congressman Andrew Clyde (GA-9) voted to overturn the November 3 election results and to nullify the votes of over 35,000 Clarke County voters, of nearly 2,500,000 Georgia voters, and of over 80,000,000 American voters. They did this on the day that thousands of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol building, resulting in 5 deaths. Leading up to those incidents, Congressman Hice falsely accused the November 3 election of being fraudulent, yet considered his own re-election to be valid. On the morning of the deadly insurrection, Congressman Hice urged supporters to “FIGHT” and stated “This is our 1776 moment.” It is paramount that our Congressional representatives serve their constituents and no other individual or power. Congressman Hice has shown that he does not prioritize our democracy and he has, intentionally or not, jeopardized our nation with his actions. Jody Hice must resign, and if he does not, then his colleagues in Congress should expel him.
